Including Sneaker Doo Dahs

When it comes to food, Hethersett Ducklings know what they like. 

The pre-school playgroup has produced its own cookbook containing favourite recipes chosen either by the youngsters or their parents/guardians. 

The book includes everything from boiled eggs and pasta to culinary delights such as marshmallow and chocolate cake and Snicker Doo-Dahs. 

The books are available at £3.50 each by contacting Helen Lawn on 01603 814133. 

The Ducklings group, which meets weekday mornings from 9.10 a.m until 11.40 a.m, is settling into new accommodation in the grounds of Woodside Infants’ School where it has been since Easter. 

The group celebrated its 40th birthday last year when it moved to the new two classroom venue which is also used by Woodside School for breakfast, after school and extended school activities. 

Ducklings is run separately to the main Woodside School complex and caters for children from 30 months old up to four and a half. They also run an activity group for children from 21 months to two and a half years on Wednesday afternoons. 

“At present we have 45 children on our register and can take a maximum of 20 each day with a staff of four looking after them,” said playschool supervisor Nicky Wardale. 

Ducklings is run by a committee of parents who also fundraise. Recent fundraising events have included a body shop party and the sale of tea towels. 

It is likely the group will have some places available from September. Anybody interested in finding out more details should contact registration secretary Lyn Ottoway on 01603 812884.
